Dental care for my kids

My disabled adult kids need extensive dental care that is not covered by their state insurance plan.  State insurance only covers irreversible, destructive "treatments" like extraction.  We have a good dentist who is willing to attempt to fill their cavities and only proceed with root canal or extraction where absolutely necessary, but the state will not cover a cautious approach to save the teeth. 

The dentist gave us an estimate of $15,000 just for one of the kids' (Vincent's) needed care.  The others' dental needs are less extreme, so I am trying to raise 5k more for them, but we haven't gotten estimates for them because none of this is within our reach and feels hopeless.

If you can't contribute, please at least support and get the word out for Bernie Sanders for president, because his Medicare for All plan is the only one that will FULLY cover dental, vision, mental health, long term care and other treatments that my family and I desperately need, AND make it universal like 911 and libraries, so that it cannot be undermined by privatization.  With affordable preventative care, this pain and expense could have been greatly reduced.
